Wolves keeper Rui Patricio set for AS Roma switch

Wolverhampton Wanderers keeper Rui Patricio is set to join Serie A giants AS Roma after agreeing on personal terms with the team.

The Football Insider reports that the Portuguese has agreed on terms over a three-year deal with Roma and are currently negotiating the fee and payment structure to sign him.

Patricio has one year left on his current deal with Wolves but with the Midlands club yet to sit him down for contract talks, the player has seen it is wise to end his three-year association with the club.

In his time at Wolves, Patricio who is currently with Portugal in the Euros, registered 112 appearances in the Premier League and missed just two league matches since his arrival in 2018. While his position at the club has never been in doubt, the reports claim that the departure of manager Nuno Santo has seen the keeper consider his options at the club.

Wolves have already lined up a replacement for the keeper with Olympiacos’ Jose Sa said to be a suitable replacement. A move to Roma would hand Patricio the chance to play European football and a chance to play another under Portuguesein Jose Mourinho who will be leading the club next season.

Aside from Patricio, Mourinho has his sights on landing Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka. It is claimed that Roma has tabled a £12.9 million bid for the Swiss, but it was rejected by Arsenal with the club set to return with an improved offer in the coming weeks.
